Jenni Evans 's Bio
Special Education Director
Hi, my name is Jennifer Evans and I am excited to be at Advantage Arts Academy. I am from Salt Lake City, although I attended Kinder and first grade, and then eleventh and twelfth grade in La Paz, Bolivia. I received a Bachelor of Film Studies degree and a minor in Spanish from the University of Utah. I’m almost finished with a Master of Curriculum and Instruction degree from Weber State University. I am licensed to teach Special Education, K-12+. This will be my first year at Advantage Arts Academy after two years of teaching at Syracuse Arts Academy and one year of teaching at North Davis Preparatory Academy.
I have a true passion for working with students who learn in many different ways. Helping each child progress in all areas of their development—academic, social, language, and motor—is a challenge that I am honored to accept daily. I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment.
Personally, I have been married for 23 years and have four children, one of which is married and has made me a grandma. I love life, human beings, reading and am currently working on being more and more present.
I look forward to working together with you as partners in your child’s growth and development.
